Which Version of Microsoft Windows Vista is best?

April 20, 2008

As a Microsoft based computer consultant at On Site Computer Services in New Orleans, business clients regularly inquire which version of Microsoft Windows Vista (Longhorn) is best?  The answer… It depends.  Microsoft provides several Vista choices and the difference in functionality between the Vista versions is small.  In the February 26, 2008 issue of PC World, Greg Adler provides some interesting statistics:

“According to Al Gillen of IDC Research, during 2007 approximately 75 percent of consumer PCs shipped with Vista Home Premium, while most of the rest shipped with Vista Home Basic. Vista Ultimate accounts for only a couple of percentage points.

On the business side, Microsoft Windows XP still rules, but Microsoft Windows Vista Business accounted for around 90 percent of the business PCs shipping with a Microsoft Vista version.”

As a Microsoft Partner, Registered Member, I am testing a Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate system.  I’ll keep you informed as I acquire experience servicing this new Microsoft based PC. 

If you’re searching for computer consulting, repairs or service of your Microsoft based system or network in the New Orleans area, then call the knowledgeable, reputable Microsoft specialists at Onsite Computer Services, Inc. in New Orleans 504-469-6991.

  1. Thanks so much for this helpful information about Vista. Obviously Vista has been through the wringer when it comes to criticism for its flaws. However, many articles and blog entries that criticize it don’t necessarily detail the experience of actively using it. It’s helpful to hear the opinion of another computer consultant along with some suggestions rather than just another bashing for Microsoft.
